#1GAM April – latest game development

After a break of a few weeks I’m back into development of my next game for OneGameAMonth.com.

April’s game is about escaping from a dungeon. Continuing the theme of my previous games, this new game is about a medieval Scottish knight trying to escape from an English dungeon. Knights and nobles were often taken prisoner by invading armies so that their wealthy families would pay a ransom for their release. In the game you are such a knight, captured and imprisoned awaiting ransom. However your character has some vital information for King Robert the Bruce, so must try to escape to warn him of impending danger. Whilst trying to escape you also have side tasks of gathering information about King Edward II’s plans to invade Scotland.

Here’s a short clip showing the basic gameplay and mechanics. The player character and enemy characters will be different in the final game.

    An interesting mash up of Escape from Monkey Island and the old Spectrum game Booty! Well done Colin!

      You are so right – it did remind me of Booty when I was working on it. I played Booty on my Spectrum back in the day!
